Kelp Elf + Process

Personal work | Photoshop, 2018

Time lapse of the sea elf painting, from (almost) thumbnail to mostly final! I marked each segment with a caption so you can track each step in the process.

This piece features one of my favorite, most satisfying painting techniques: SCALES. So simple, but pretty effective!
